Even a top Team like Paris Saint-Germain sometimes needs luck. If this team must rescue two lucky actions against Naples, which is a bad sign. PSG has too much class for coincidences. PSG has Neymar. Kylian Mbappé. Edinson Cavani. Gianluigi Buffon as a replacement Keeper!
Why do happiness?
the spectators at the Parc des Princes is likely to have a mystery about it after the final whistle, and some of the other questions: Why is the SSC Napoli dominated this important away game? Why a broke PSG after a strong 20 at the beginning of minutes? Where was the ease and self-confidence, after ten Wins from ten Games, with 37 goals in Ligue 1?
Thomas Tuchel answer to every question the same: “Perdu,” said the PSG coach after the game. His Team got “lost”, the “lightness, structure and dominance”. This is annoying and can happen when a coach and team working together for a few months. The implementation of his tactical ideas need a little more time.
time is the Only thing that has Tuchel in Paris not .
2:2 ended the duel on the third round of the Champions League. Twice PSG had twice a happy Moment prevented the defeat against the Italians; the 1:1 equalising goal Napoli’s Mario Rui deflected the Ball into his own goal, the 2:2 Ángel di María scored with a fabulous shot in the third Minute of added time, he was more likely to come by chance to the Ball.
Angel di Maria (l) celebrates with Thomas Tuchel
After all, the Team has prevented a second defeat in the group stage, shaking it nevertheless, PSG is third (four points), Napoli (five) and Liverpool (six). If Thomas Tuchel wants to work over the long term in Paris, he has the return game in Naples (6. November 21 at) win. A possible Out in the first round would damage his reputation severely, the mood in the club was going to tip over.
Ancelotti, Blanc, and Emery failed
Tuchel has taken a quite risky decision, as he has to push at PSG. This coaching job is one of the thankless positions in football. The French championship has to be won – it is comparable with the four right Numbers in the lottery. The club is happy, and quickly realizes how small the profit is. In Paris, only the Jackpot of the victory in the Champions League counts that.
For seven years the investors from Qatar are funding this project, you have bought Neymar, Mbappé committed, you have entrusted the Mission already, Carlo Ancelotti, Laurent Blanc and Unai Emery. All Attempts failed so far, at the latest, in the quarter-finals, the Team retired in the past few years, albeit often by the top teams beaten. Now Tuchel, the choice should be selected. And yet you hear a lot of Good things about him.
The French journalists, the Occurrence of the 45-Year-old, since his first day in the club speaks Tuchel with you French. Tuchel’s dedication to tactical Details do you know of any of his predecessors. And the Start of the Ligue 1 have set a new standard: start record with ten Wins, eight points and is ahead by two, the only approach of competitive opponents, Olympique Lyon, 5:0 from the stadium shot. Any questions? Maybe the financiers from Qatar should promote a second club in France, PSG encounters real opponents in Ligue 1.
The vulnerability is Juan Bernat
hardness Exactly is the big Problem: No national competition is on an international top level no Competition. Against Napoli, the Team met again to its limits, for the second Time, after the Liverpool Defeat. The greatest weakness of the left-back: Juan Bernat may be a friendly person, his old Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti, he welcomed even during the Napoli game with a handshake. Bernat comply with the requirements of the German or French League. An international Topverteidiger he is not.
The “L’équipe” was written before the game, Bernat had to provide arguments for his Transfer. The game ran like this: The Spaniards inflicted the 0:1 by Lorenzo Insigne, he proposed a successful flank into the penalty area, substitution at half-time. In the return game, the former Bayern are likely to be professional nevertheless in doing so, the rival Layvin Kurzawa is missing due to a herniated disc is to an indefinite period of time. While the Offensive is full of class, lack of rear-high-class Alternatives.
But it should not be used as an excuse. For Tuchel, with the DFB Cup with Borussia Dortmund in Germany are quite popular, but internationally still at the beginning of his career. This is also true for some of his players. Marco Verratti, 25, Marquinhos, 24, Adrien Rabiot, 23 or Kylien Mbappé, 19, have not reached their Zenith yet, you can increase your level yet. Tuchel has developed and improved Teams, in the spirit of Paris, and there is better than at Bayern, where he had accompanied an ageing squad in the athletic retirement.
The crucial question is: do you Get Tuchel at all the time to improve his Team in Paris? The return game against Napoli is already leading the way.
